Tinubu speaks on bullion vans allegedly entering his house

Bola Tinubu


Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has reacted to reports that bullion vans allegedly sighted entering his compound in Lagos contained money he wanted to use to influence elections.

Although he refuted the claim that he wanted to buy votes, he said he could keep and spend his money as he was pleased because he was not a government contractor.

He told journalists after casting his vote today,  “Excuse me, is it my money or government money? I don’t work for the government. I am not in an agency of government and let anyone come out to say I have collected contract from the government of President Muhammadu Buhari or the APC in the last five years. They should prove it.

“I am on my own and I am committed to my party. So, even if I have money to spend on my premises, what is your headache? If I don’t represent any agency of government and I have money to spend, if I like, I give it to the people free of charge as long as it is not to buy votes.

“Who are those monitoring my house or bullion vans? They must be mischief makers because they report falsehood. They are liars and idle.”
